The event highlighted best practice in the region’s arts and education sectors.
Peter Rubery, executive principal at Fallibroome Academy, said: “We are honoured and delighted to receive such as prestigious award which is true recognition of the quality of Mrs Fay’s leadership and the commitment of a talented group of teachers in the Fallibroome Learning Community and Trust. Many schools are responding to the Government’s drive to narrow the curriculum by cutting arts provision but our belief in the intrinsic value of the arts and the opportunities such provision creates for our students to develop key skills is reflected in this unique award.”
